- Normal anion gap acidosis
Normal anion gap acidosis Classification and external resources ICD-10 E87.2 ICD-9 276.2 DiseasesDB 29144
The differential diagnosis of normal anion gap acidosis is relatively short (when compared to the differential diagnosis of acidosis):
- Acetazolamide and other carbonic anhydrase inhibitors
- Renal tubular acidosis
- Ureteroenteric fistula - an abnormal connection (fistula) between a ureter and the gastrointestinal tract
- Pancreaticoduodenal fistula - an abnormal connection between the pancreas and duodenum
As opposed to high anion gap acidosis (which involves increased organic acid production), normal anion gap acidosis involves either increased production of chloride (hyperchloremic acidosis) or increased excretion of bicarbonate.
